1. The Hudson Hotel (356 W. 58th Street)- For starters, the Hudson has two venues within its walls which appeal to every type of party-goer. The first spot, Hudson Common, offers drinks and dining in a casual atmosphere with upbeat, hit music being played the entire time. With enough room to dance in the dining room and comfy couches by their decorative fireplace, you’re free to do as you choose in this wide, spacious room. Directly across the hall is their liquor bar, Henry. While Hudson Common has a sort of “create your own” dance floor, Henry has spots cleared throughout the area for guests to get down while they drink — and it looks like table service is on the menu! By ordering a bottle, you receive house-made sodas on the side to mix with your liquor, or you can try one of their signature cocktails. While this site is a little more upscale, there’s no reason to hold back and feel uncomfortable while having a good time.
The month of April, already admired for its warmer temperatures and promising showers, also plays host to a very notable month long holiday—National Grilled Cheese Month. And whether you’re a fan of white American, brie, or even the traditional cheddar, you’ll be amazed by the many ways restaurants across NYC are dishing out in order to provide customers with the best grilled cheese sandwiches possible. Here are our Top restaurants which are serving up grilled cheese spin-offs for you to visit and enjoy this month:
Featuring a seasonal menu, this restaurant should definitely be the first stop on your sandwich adventure. The menu is almost completely made up of grilled cheese options, such as a breakfast sandwich of crispy pork belly, egg, Gouda, gruyere, and kewpie mayonnaise on a brioche bun or a classic Muenster and white American on peasant bread for lunch. But be warned, not all of the options are this standard. Those who love the taste of blue cheese can sink their teeth into the pear puree, stilton, toasted walnut, and sliced pear sandwich, or grab a protein booster and try a sharp white cheddar, avocado mash, lemon, and herbed kewpie mayo on peasant bread. With so many other options, there’s an opportunity for a person with any taste to find something to love, so bring your friends and take a trip downtown!
